100+ San Diego Wineries

San Diego County would never be described as part of “wine country,” but perhaps it should. With over 100 wineries and/or vineyards (yes, 100!) throughout the county, though, it would take some serious dedication to try out all that the area has to offer in this sphere.

A year-round climate of sunshine makes San Diego fertile ground (literally and figuratively) for those in the winery and the vineyard business. The county’s geographical proximity to Temecula ValleyNapa Valley, and Baja California’s wine country down in Mexico also helps to make it a prime location for wine enthusiasts and novices alike. Highland Valley Wine Country, one could say fairly, is at least a mini-Temecula or Napa, a chance to experience some of what those tourist destinations have to offer in the state’s most southwestern county over in Escondido. Pretty much the same could be said of both Ramona Valley and the Wineries on Highway 94.

Many of San Diego County’s wineries sit in fairly close proximity to one another, so touring up to several in one full day is a realistic goal. Of course, you probably need your own car to do so. But if a chauffeured wine tour is more your speed, there are several local companies that can take care of the driving for you (Uber + Lyft can assist as well).

Our revamped map and user-friendly guide with filters should help you find the right winery or wineries, for yourself and your friends and family. Enjoy and don’t forget: San Diego County is wine country, even if we’re too modest sometimes to say that to your friends!
